World Migratory Bird Day was initiated in 2006 and is an annual awareness-raising campaign highlighting the need for the protection of migratory birds and their habitats. World Migratory Bird Day is organized by the Secretariats of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) and the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) – two international wildlife treaties administered by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) – and a growing number of partners. Join the celebration of a great natural wonder on World Migratory Bird Day! We invite everyone to join us to celebrate, protect and raise awareness of migratory birds on 12-13 May 2012 by organizing bird-watching events, educational programmes, lectures, art exhibitions, competitions and other public events. However you decide to participate, your contribution will help make a difference!
